I am a new rider. I took the MSF class 3 years ago so I could have my license for my 50th birthday. My husband at the time was against my riding (unless I was on the back of his) and would not let me ride after I got my license. I have been divorced 7 months now and have been out on the 650 Yamaha cruiser once on my own. I recently purchased a Suzuki dual-sport to practice with a month ago.

I can relate to another comment that when I'm on the bike that is where my whole focus has to be. Everything else fades away. I love the confidence riding gives me. I still have to "talk myself up" before going out for a ride, but the joy I feel during and after is unbeatable. I am in a very rural area and am looking for a riding buddy or group to ride with.

Welcome to the world of two-wheeled fun!

Be sure to read our newly posted article about ways to find a motorcycle riding buddy.

I'm so glad I read this article. I'm 50 years old and have been riding as a passenger with my husband for about nine years now. For the last few years I have thought about getting my own and learning to ride. Well, I finally did it! I got my own last week. Of course now all of the nervousness, doubts, and concerns have started to kick in, especially the fact that I'm 50 and never ridden before, and if I can really do this. But I'm taking the training course next month and so far my husband has been a wonderful mentor. I just hope I am able to do it!

I love this article and hearing their stories. I began to ride after my divorce and my kids were grown up. This has been a secret passion of mine for so long and now I'm living life. I went to through the class and felt so good about everything. Then got my own bike with my own funds as I am a financial consultant. I have no one to thank for my happiness but myself and my bike. My first bike was a Suzuki Savage 650 and now I have a Honda Shadow 1100. I would not change a thing. Go for it you strong independent women!

I'm a new rider. I've bought my dream bike, taken lessons, and have gotten my license but I still need to practice and don't want to do it alone or pay for private lessons. Are there any new rider groups in the Long Island, New York area that you know of?

I can point you in the direction of two places on our website. Our List of Women's Motorcycling Riding Clubs may have clubs in that area; and the WRN Forum is a great place to meet and network with other riders all over the country, some may be in your area.

Good luck!
